My verdict is: both YSL Rouge Pur Couture 155 Nu Imprevu and 156 Nu Transgression work as nude lipsticks for me. They just have different purposes. YSL Rouge Pur Couture 155 Nu Imprevu is an innocent peach shade that would work with heavy eyeshadows. And YSL Rouge Pur Couture 156 Nu Transgression is a more intense nude that would work with a more natural eye look.
